A few weeks ago we brought you news of the Lister LFT 666 supercar (click here to read that story). Now, the small motor manufacturer from the UK announces the Lister LFP. Lister claims that this will be the world’s fastest SUV. You can learn more about Lister, which claims to be the world’s oldest surviving race team, by clicking this link.
Jag F-pace base
As with the high-performance coupe model launched a few weeks ago, the Lister LFP uses a Jaguar as a base from which to start. In the case of the LFP the firm starts with a Jaguar F-Pace.
Details on the exact nature of the upgrades are being kept under wraps for now, but Lister has confirmed that its LFP will produce a stonking 500 kW. Courtesy of the donor car’s all-wheel-drive system the LFP is said to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in a scant 3,5 seconds. More importantly, to back up its “world’s fastest” claim, the LFP is said to top out at 322 km/h. That top speed is even faster than the recently launched Lamborghini Urus.
As you can see from the interior images, Lister isn’t afraid of a little carbon-fibre in its diet. The material is said to be used extensively in the LFP to decrease the mass to the benefit of acceleration and handling.
In his words
Commenting on the much-anticipated release of the bespoke new LFP model, Lawrence Whittaker, CEO of the Lister Motor Company, says “I am delighted, overwhelmed and gratified by the huge level of interest, excitement and orders our LFT-666 supercar has already generated in just a few months. Based on early indications, our new LFP promises to repeat the success of the LFT-666, and I really can’t wait to reveal the world’s fastest SUV quite soon.”
